Item description for Quest for Hope in the Slum Community: A Global Urban Reader by Scott Bessenecker...

Overview
Humanity has existed on earth for thousands of years, yet we are just now beginning to experience a kind of community that has never before existed-the slum community. As the number of slum communities and those living in them continue to rise at an alarming rate, Christians need to examine their role in sharing the hope, joy, healing, and servanthood of Christ to those in despair. Quest for Hope in the Slum Community is a collection of the diverse dialog that exists in the area of urban transformation. Everything from housing to street children along with a healthy collection of articles around a theology of urban poverty is addressed. This material is designed to stimulate the imagination of those exploring the question of how to address with compassion and conviction the stark realities of urban poverty.
